Re: [wsjtgroup] Min Requirements?
- Hi Jerry
minimum requirements on 2m are a radio, an antenna and patience on both
sides. Last week (no shower) I almost (should have) completed an 800 mile
MS QSO on 144MHz with me running 5 watt into a 3wl and the other side
running 3W into a 1.5wl. Only because I made a stupid mistake the QSO did
not get complete.
My normal power is 400W but I have made many QSO's with various stations
running 3, 10, 15, 25W into antenna's as small as 1.5-2.5wl. Some were on
random, some on sked with chat feedback (via http://www.on4kst.com). These
were all stations around the apparent "optimum" distance of abt 600-950
miles. Shorter and longer distances get more difficult and is where more
In short, the main thing for MS is patience :))
On EME best is to make a sked. Running abt 500W ERP is enough to work some
stations like W5UN, KB8RQ, I2FAK, RN6BN. Especially the latter is
exceptionally active working very small stations and when QRV can be found
on the ON4KST site. See his station on
73 and GL!
